In adults, mindfulness training has been proven time and again to improve health and wellbeing. It also helps people of all ages to learn more effectively, think more clearly, perform better and to feel calmer, less anxious and less depressed. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) and GPs are referring adults to 8 week courses that reduce stress and help prevent recurrent depression. It is increasingly being used in business to improve staff wellbeing and satisfaction, in sports training to improve performance, and with children and young people and in schools to enhance well-being and learning.
We are now able to offer Mindfulness Training for 7-11 year olds as part of our service using the PAWs B Programme which has been developed by Mindfulness inSchools (www.mindfulnesinschools.org)
